Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

penthe on 2016-12-30 15:28

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

starshakur on 2018-05-05 15:17

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

Time to start looking for an alternative, till then i'll use Windows Explorer.

NOTE: Recent press about CCleaner indicates it may represent a privacy concern.

CCleaner is a feature-rich system optimization and privacy tool. The program cleans unused, temporary and log files from your system, as well as traces of online activities such as Internet history and flash cookies. The program contains startup controls for Windows, major internet browsers and context menu entries. Includes a separate registry cleaner, duplicate search, system restore tool and can wipe both deleted files and drive free space for security.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder). Monitoring functions are only available in the pro version.

Additional cleaner rules can be using an unofficial set of community-developed set. It should be noted that many of these rules are alpha and the developers will not provide support for these rules, a thread in the users forum is dedicated to supporting the add-on rules.

Alternatively, ccPortable is also available.

Happy Holidays To You All :)
Just wondering...Do any of you fine folks have the Palemoon Portable Browser v28 installed on a Vista Home Premium 32-bit OS?
Well, if you do, would you please tell me how? I've DL'ed a couple of v28's and installed them and they wouldn't launch.
To my knowledge of what I've been reading, Palemoon v28+ is for Windows 7+.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pale_Moon_%28web_browser%29

Please tell me your tips & tricks so I can go back to using Palemoon. Thanks so much.

Take care.

@Happy.Camper2 - You can probably use New Moon by Roy Tam. Check the MSFN forums for a link.

qj3328 on 2019-10-31 01:02

Pale Moon has become my default and favorite browser. It is laid out for the convenience of users rather than being handicapped to keep up with the latest in look, touch and feel that kills productivity. Pale Moon is for those that want to get work done, with as little time as possible lost to the eternal quest to locate moved, missing or deleted features that are too common in other browsers at every update. As for all browsers, sometimes pages are not rendered correctly and if so, I just jump briefly to a different browser - but I always end up returning to Pale Moon. In recent years the collection of Pale Moon-specific add-ons has increased dramatically, making it a fine substitute for Firefox.

Because of the different strategies of most defrag apps you can do more false then right:
if you're using Vista/7/8 use the build-in defragmenter on a regular basis,
if you use XP my favourite is DiskDefrag on a regular basis,
if you defragment your hard disk, please use only one app for it.

I'm not a 'fanboy' of Auslogics DiskDefrag or any of their other products.

Ultra Defrag looks good and works fast . I downloaded it just after reading a review at http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-disk-de-fragmenter.htm . Just can't wait to see how it works when compared to all other defragmenters I have tried in the past.

PS - Can anyone help me how to enable Boot Time Defragmentation provided I use the portable version.

Something I've encountered in JPEGView: If you're working with a transparent PNG file, avoid editing and saving it with JPEGView, as the app cannot retain the transparent content and will replace it with a black background. JPEGView is otherwise very good for basic image editing.

Re my previous comment: This was with the 32-bit version. I have no way of knowing how the 64-bit version deals with transparencies, as I can't run it on my machine. At any rate, viewing them is OK; just don't save them from JPEGView.

I have my doubts regarding how "portable" this program is. I know it's popular...but portable...not so sure. I decided to try running it in a sandbox (Sandboxie). It wouldn't even install in the sandbox. Makes me think this program is trying to install a driver and sandboxie is stopping it. If so, then it's not portable in my sense of the word.

Cool program, but wish I could just do a free mouse crop (draw a rectangle of any size or shape) on this program to crop.

shodan816 on 2015-06-01 11:26

Totally agree with webfork. A great little utility, but the ability to draw a freehand rectangle would be fantastic. Nevertheless, it's still a keeper!

shodan816 on 2015-06-01 11:28

Please ignore last comment. Latest version allows free rectangle. Thank you, Trimto!

WizMouse v1.7.0.3

webfork on 5 Sep 2016

WizMouse is a lightweight program that lets your mouse wheel scroll the window under the mouse pointer even if the window doesn't have input focus. This means you no longer have to click on a window to activate it before you can scroll it with your mouse wheel.

The program can also optionally enable the mouse wheel in applications that don't support mouse by converting mouse wheel messages to scroll bar messages.

Other options include "reverse mouse scrolling" (like "natural scrolling" on Mac OS X Lion), and bringing the scrolling window to the foreground.

A little intimidating at first, but so far looks like the best file verification tool I've tried yet. Fast, recursive directory verify, open source, relative pathways, and multiple different verification methods? Dream come true for making sure your data hasn't changed or corrupted. Recommend MD5 for general file verification and SHA 256 for security verifications.

FV++ Author on 2011-04-28 21:10

There is a version of FV++ that works with Windows 2000. The version is v0.6.4.6010 (it is under fileverifier-testing). While several of the icons do not render properly under Win2K, it is functional.

Also, there is no functional difference between the installed version and the ZIP version, at least in terms of the program itself. The executables are identical. What makes a FV++ installation portable is the presence of the fv.cfg file in the installation directory. There are no differences besides this and the lack of an installer.

only for it to insist i update with a 30 day trial, anyways im certain that wasnt the case when you added the link, but sadly it is now, now for some good news freeware files.com have a zip file hosted by them, just a simple click and its downloaded within seconds, another reason 1 of many reasons i had2 join this site is the portable version has acc & ac3 dlls installed but windows error told me they werent for windows or basicly corrupted anyways long story short, i checked the maker out which is, incase any1 else has this problem, un4seen devolopment has the most recent base dlls etc and now my portable spider works a treat, i like others never heard of this player but im totally in lv with it and its a shame its been abandoned but its great that people like you have saved it for people like me. many thx and much respect
